Abstract

Overview

Boston University, in collaboration with Makerere University in Uganda and the Center for Strategic Research and Development in Tanzania, implemented a mixed methods study to determine the effectiveness and cost of different approaches to providing educational support to OVC at secondary schools.  The study had four objectives: to compare block grants versus individual scholarship approaches; to explore the differences in effectiveness among various block grant approaches; to calculate the costs per child of each approach, and to measure the impact of each approach on educational outcomes for all children in the targeted schools. The study was a retrospective cohort study and used a mixed methods design adopting both qualitative and quantitative approaches to research.
